Alternative Spring Break Opportunities

service learningHappy Monday!

Hope that you had a fabulous weekend and are ready for a new week.  Here are some fun ideas for a meaningful spring break to give you something to think (dream!) about as you start your week:

1.  Work with the Dolores Huerta Foundation in Bakersfield.  Learn about issues facing the valley and the realities of living, working, and studying in rural agricultural communities.  Dates:  March 1-5.  Accommodations:  home-stays with staff and supporters.  Cost $150.  Contact:  Diana Enriquez – denriquez@ndnu.edu

2.  Travel to Matagalpa, Nicaragua to work with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, helping volunteer at their ministry and service sites and engage in education and reflection with local leaders and members of the community.  Dates:  March 1-9.  Cost:  $350. Contact for more info: Amy Jobin:  650 508-3761 or ajobin@ndnu.edu

We know that your jobs probably don’t give you a spring break (unfortunate, eh?), but if you have accumulated vacation, these opportunities to learn while helping others might be a fabulous alternative to more routine plans.
